Chip Kelly: 'Bigger people beat up little people'
New Eagles coach Chip Kelly held his most extensive media session since he took the job two months ago, chatting with waves of curious reporters gathered for the NFC coaches' breakfast at the NFL Meetings.

"We still have to play," said Kelly. "So if you don’t have a franchise quarterback you can’t just throw your hands up before the game and go, ‘We don’t have Tom Brady so we’re screwed today.’ Every coach’s job is to put their players in position to make plays. You have to adjust and you have to adapt, and I think that’s where people make mistakes."

"I like the fact that we’re there, because we’re there all year long. There’s not a transition," he said Wednesday from the Arizona Biltmore. "You’re not moving, picking things up, going somewhere, and then turn around and coming back. "Part of what I always wanted to do is get our guys in a rhythm of, ‘This is how we do things.’ The only thing that changes is the schedule starts to change, but we’re in the same spot. I think there’s a comfort level from being in the same spot. "The other thing that was amazing to me is when you see that building and what it can provide to our players, from a rehabilitation standpoint, our weight room, video, all those other things are right there."
